Ed Sheeran has finally set a date for his newest, ungoogleable album.
Following the naming conventions of his last albums, this one is named “equals” but really it’s the equal sign. It’s set for release on October 29th and Sheeran says “= (Equals) is a really personal record and one that means a lot to me.”
He says it reflects a lot of the changes he’s had in his life over the past few years including getting married, becoming a dad, and the loss that he’s experienced too. Along with the announcement, Sheeran shared both a performance and studio version of an emotional new single, “Visiting Hours,” which features vocals from Kylie Minogue and Jimmy Barnes.
